  • 5-Hydroxytryptophan‚ also known as 5-HTP‚ is a chemical compound that your body produces naturally. Intake of amino acid called tryptophan--which is found in foods like turkey‚ chicken‚ collard greens‚ milk‚ potatoes‚ and pumpkins--is converted into the usable substance. However‚ a 5-HTP supplement allows you to cut out the middle man and experience its benefits more quickly.

    Sometimes‚ your natural production of 5-HTP is insufficient. That's where a supplement can help. 5-HTP 100 mg by Pure Encapsulations provides the nutrients needed to stimulate production of serotonin‚ a hormone that may work to regulate your mood and promote relaxation.

    Serotonin works with your brain and endocrine system. It may impact how you feel emotionally‚ alleviating mild sadness or stress. In addition‚ this neurotransmitter is involved in maintaining a healthy appetite. In some cases‚ 5-HTP may help you feel more full after eating‚ making a healthy diet easier to maintain.

    Finally‚ it can help you manage sleep/wake cycles‚ letting you get a good night's rest. Since a lack of sleep can contribute to irritability‚ 5-HTP may be right for you if you have trouble falling or staying asleep at night.

    Each vegetable capsule of this supplement provides 100 milligrams of 5-Hydroxytryptophan‚ which has been derived naturally from the Griffonia simplicifolia plant. Take one to three capsules daily‚ in divided doses before meals. At the recommended dosage‚ every 180-capsule bottle of Pure Encapulations' 5-HTP 100 mg should last from two to six months.

    Don't use this supplement if you're pregnant‚ breastfeeding‚ or taking SSRI medications or MAO inhibitors.

    Pricey but worth it.

    My Naturopath recommend 5-HTP when I mentioned that I was having trouble losing weight. I wanted to lose only 10-15 pounds and didnt want to go on an extreme diet program so I thought Id try it. It took about 4 weeks but I have noticed a difference in my ability to lose weight. 5-HTP seems to have boosted the power of the exercise and nutritional changes Ive made. Im definitely going to continue taking 5-HTP and would recommend it to others.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Very Good Product

    Ive been taking 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) now for a little over a month to help me with depression/anxiety. I dont take medications - just vitaminsminerals amino acids and nutrients. Any time I feel a better sense of well being pop up (and it does sometimes a little while after taking a capsule) Im assured that this product is doing what it purports to do. I have a long way to go over-all but its good to have supplements I can have faith in to aid the process.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Love 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) 100 mg

    I can finallysleep through the night. I tried other 5 HTP products but never had any success. This brand is quite a lot more expensive but to me its worth it. Ive been able to cut back over time too its not something you need to be on forever. My debilitating anxiety was greatly reduced with the combination of 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) 100 mg DLPA L-Tyrosine and Gaba Calm.

    Pros

      Works so well

    Cons

      expensive

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
